RENT's 'Seasons of Love' to Be Featured in GLEE's Monteith Tribute

As previously reported, GLEE's upcoming emotional tribute to late actor Cory Monteith, to be titled 'The Quarterback,' will focus on Monteith's character Finn Hudson. The episode will air Thursday, October 10th. OK Magazine has revealed today that the show will feature a full cast performance of 'Seasons of Love' from the long-running Broadway musical RENT.

"The [episode] is more of a celebration of Cory's life, and the difference he made to us and the fans of the show," a source exclusively told HollywoodLife.com. "As much as it will be [part of the Glee season], it also feels like a stand-alone episode."

Set entirely in Lima, Ohio, home of fictional McKinley High, where Hudson enjoyed four years as star quarterback, the episode opens with the news of the athlete's death before going on "to focus on all the characters remembering and mourning him, and celebrating his life."

Lea Michele, who portrays Rachel Berry, the on again-off again girlfriend of Finn, will not be seen until the final scene. While her appearance is brief, her performance is "incredibly powerful." A musical number performed by Michele's character will also be featured.
